In the article Skov Nielsen examines what happens when communication
is not intentional, but works directly counter to intentions? What
happens when someone tells or does something exactly because he
does not want to? What decoding practices can we bring to which kind
of genres and situations? The article analyses some instances of the
workings of this ‘counter-will’. Three texts from
different periods and
different genres are compared with a view to examining what happens
when one starts to tell that one will not tell. The texts are Freud’s early,
pre-psychoanalytical texts, »Ein Fall von hypnotischer Heilung«, St.
Paul’s treatment of glossolalia in his first letter to the Corinthians, and
Poe’s tale »The Tell-Tale Heart«.
